A gentle answer quiets anger, but a harsh one stirs it up. When wise people speak, they make knowledge attractive, but stupid people spout nonsense. [restrict] The Lord sees what happens everywhere; he is watching us, whether we do good or evil. Kind words bring life, but cruel words crush your spirit. It is foolish to ignore what your father taught you; it is wise to accept his correction. Righteous men keep their wealth, but wicked men lose theirs when hard time comes. Knowledge is spread by people who are wise, not by fools. Proverbs 15:1 – 7 TEV [/restrict]
